"I am a realistic landscape and still life Pastel painter. In the summer, I enjoy painting outside (plein air) and in the winter with photographs, inside. My experience as a Graphic Artist helps me to arrange and organize my subject matter. Pastels are very forgiving and allow the opportunity to paint the light and dark, form and texture, to achieve balance and design. I am passionate about my Art and am a member of the Pastel Painters of Maine, Casco Bay Art League, Royal River Art League and the Pastel Society of New Hampshire. I am inspired by the magic and nature of Maine - the lovely place I call home. I show my work at Galleries, Stores and some of the Local Art Fairs. My Pastel paintings have been included in Juried shows throughout the Northeast. Thanks for being interested."
